IPhone 8 Beats the iPhone X in Durability Tests

Apple's $999 iPhone X switched from a traditional LCD panel to a more premium OLED screen, which is more colorful, brighter and energy efficient.

According to a recent report, all models of next years 2018 iPhone X will come with Apple's Face ID and will feature the notch at the top of the display.

Apple could also opt to go with a new supplier for the LCD model.

A different source disclosed that Casetek is already trying out new casings for the LCD model in hopes that it would be chosen to supply the back case for the 6.1-inch iPhone.

The most interesting development, though, centres on the LCD-packing iPhone X model. Then again, if Apple sticks to the bezel-less design, a 5.8-inch iPhone should feel fairly close in the hand to a 4.7-inch iPhone 8, 7 or 6. In drop-test videos by EverythingApplePro, PhoneBuff, and JerryRigEverything, the iPhone X was found to be more durable than the iPhone 8.

Considering we're nine months away from seeing the new iPhones, it's worth taking this report lightly until we see stronger evidence that these possibilities could be true.

The same source revealed that Pegatron subsidiary Casetek could become the supplier of the metal backs for the 6.1-inch iPhone units.

Granted, I've been using many of my favorite apps in "dark mode" to enjoy the dynamic range of the OLED screen - Twitter and the excellent Apollo Reddit client, chief among them - but I still spend a lot of time using this phone to watch videos, GIFs, take notes, set reminders, make calls, and constantly refresh Twitter. The 5.8-inch OLED iPhone would offer a pixel density of 458ppi, same as the current iPhone X. The 6.5-inch OLED iPhone would have a pixel density of 480-500ppi.

iPhone 8 still has that iconic circular home button, which also allows for Touch ID. iPhone X, meantime, traded that for the headphone jack.

The low-end LCD device out of the three will be assembled by Pegatron and possibly Wistron.

The iPhone X performed about the same as two other flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, Consumer Reports said.
